@morreafirebird He has a good, supportive family. Its set in ancient Jerusalem in the time of Jesus, and how he leaves is he gets thrown in the galleys by the Romans for a “crime” that really is understandable. So, under amazing circumstances, he wins his freedom and returns home two years later. His family has thought him dead, because hardly anyone ever gets out of the galleys, and the typical maximum life span in the galleys is a year. His family almost dies in the meantime too, by the way.
Also, so you think he might feel a little intimidated when he goes back? Overjoyed to see his family, but maybe also a bit scared and unsure?
Thanks for answering! He also has a little sister, but its easier for me to figure her out. 🙂
